    Requesting Programmer for Game/Paying in Royalties

    Hi everyone!

    I'm project manager for Crynet Games, and we're currently working on an MMORPG titled "Conquer All Time". I don't want to get too specific on the game itself for obvious reasons, but what I'll share is that the game is played in a 3-dimensional world in which the player will travel through time, making his/her way through different eras, each with their own monsters, skills, etc. We have a very diverse team of thirteen people, but we're a bit short on programmers, so I've come looking for potential team members :3

    What we'll expect is that the person has at least a basic knowledge of either C++ or Java, as we'll be working in Hero Script (which our Lead Programmer claims to be very similar). We need the programmer to be readily available through Skype at least a few hours a day, and we expect a good work ethic. It is required that the person works on the project at least 5 hours a week.

    Each team member will be required to sign an NDA, as well as a few other written contracts to protect both the team and the project. As stated in the title, we will be paying in royalties. The amount, however, is affected by the work put forth by each member. Slackers receive less, while the more diligent receive more.

    Thanks in advance, and I hope to talk to you soon.

    Moving to project collaboration as this is not a paying job position.

    Paying in Royalties doesn't qualify as a paying job position?

    No it doesn't. It qualifies as an investment of work in return for potential share of profits, which is not guaranteed, and will not be paid out for an undeterminate period of time. For a gig requiring 3+ hours/day 5 days/week (15+ hrs/week), this is not enough to be considered a paying job position.

    Hi, I recently posted on this forum looking for hobby oriented game creating groups. I think you fit the bill perfectly!

    I have Skype and am willing to use it, and have some experience with JavaScript. I also have a friend who is good at web-based coding, like PHP and MySQL etc.

    If you'd like to get in touch, I've PM'd you my Skype username and ID, not sure which I'm sposed to give out if I'm honest, so just have both

    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Dan.
